“Plex — the all-in-one, network agnostic media sharing server — has come to the new Apple TV via the tvOS App Store,” Dennis Sellers writes for Apple World Today. “Though the set-up process is a little com-Plex (snicker), this is a great solution for streaming your own media to just about any device you own.”
“Plex comes in two versions. A free version of the media server software, and a $4.99 version called Plex Pass,” Sellers writes. “Plex — even the free version — gives you one simple interface to organize all of your media: your movie and TV collection, your music library, and all of your photos and home videos.”
“The media sharing platform also adds descriptions, plot summaries, posters, and album covers. It also pulls in information from the Web, including Rotten Tomatoes ratings, related content, trailers and more,” Sellers writes. “The app also supports advanced search options allowing those with larger personal libraries to search by actor, director and genre, among others. Music receives similar treatment with artist bios, album cover art, playlist support and granular search functions.”
